The Life Grove is a room in the Tallon Overworld. It appears in Metroid Prime.

Description[edit | edit source]

When Samus enters, she finds herself at the edge of a cliff. She must jump down to find herself inside a large dome-like structure, with a small piece of land sticking out of the water. On this land piece is the X-Ray Visor, which Samus will need to exit the Life Grove, and for further progression of events. If Samus activates the X-Ray Visor, she can find that the dome is constructed out of Bendezium and may be destroyed with a Power Bomb (should Samus have run out, several Seedlings inside the dome will give her ammo when killed).

Samus ascends the platforms around the large tree.

This will then lead to an area off the map hologram of the room, and a large chamber open to the skies. Samus can then gain another item, the Artifact of Chozo. She does this by finding a Sandstone panel in the water and Bombing it, bringing up a Spinner with a lock-like mechanism attached. Charging the Spinner will rotate the lock-like mechanism into a proper position, and another pillar will rise, with the artifact inside. To exit the room, Samus must navigate a series of platforms, Morph Ball tunnels and bridges on Great Trees, to get to the top of the dome.

Unfortunately for her, three Chozo Ghosts attack her before she can exit, possibly forcing her to have to navigate the area all over again. However, the fight is now much easier, now that she has the X-Ray Visor. After their defeat, a hole blows open in the top of the dome, this hole drops Samus down to the ledge where she can leave the Life Grove.

A Hidden World can be found in this room: [1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Seedlings will keep respawning unless Samus destroys the walls of the room.
  • The Life Grove is the only non-Chozo Ruins room in which Chozo Ghosts appear to attack Samus, although non-violent ones appear to her in the Artifact Temple.
